Overview

Living with his stern grandfather taught Trevor Callahan one important lesson: Caring makes a man weak. Now the old man is dead and Trev returns to Stone Creek for one reason and one reason only--to sell the Rocking C Ranch. Maybe then he can put his past behind him and move on.

Beth Evans once confused lust for love and vows never to let it happen again. The bookmobile driver is trying to raise funds to build a new library. The late Hank Callahan bequeathed a million dollars for the project, but he attached one stipulation: Do not let his grandson sell the ranch.

Excerpt:

He leaned across the desk. “You know, we haven’t discussed the kiss the other night.”

She scooted the chair back. “There’s nothing to discuss.”
He stood and slowly came around the desk, reached for her hand and pulled her to her feet. “I want to kiss you again.”

“That’s probably not a good idea.” Oh, lord. She was playing with fire and if she wasn’t careful, she was going to get burned. Bad.

“Probably not. I know you said we’d never kiss again. But don’t you want to kiss me? Can’t you feel the pull between us?”

“Yes . . . No!” She jerked her hand free and started backing away.

He followed, closing in on her until she bumped against the library table. “Just one kiss, Beth. One kiss can’t hurt.”

Before she could react, before she could reply, Trevor wrapped his arms around her, covered her mouth with his and God help her, she was a goner.

I loved everything about this book. The heroine and her daughter were adorable. The story was great and the two leads had terrific chemistry. Definitely worth reading.

This book was fun to read. I especially liked the down to earth mother and her precocious but delightful daughter. Of course, liking the sexy guy was a given! This free book for my Nook was from Barnes and Noble with 173 pages. I appreciate getting a no risk chance to read books by an author I didn't know about before. I thought she wrote a great story of love, insecurity, denial of ones feelings, romance and sex. (I'd say this book is for people 18 and over.) The only criticism is that it was predictable. Now some say a predictable story allows you to relax since you are 99% sure of how things will turn out. The saving grace for me was how well the author told this tale. I will look for more novels by this author. Books I will gladly pay for, since I feel confident I will enjoy reading them.
